The Birthday Celebrating Continues...

Today was another meeting of the Birthday Club. We celebrated the three May birthdays (mine included) and one for August.

We had a blast, but unfortunately I forgot my camera and don't have any pictures. Ashley took some, but hasn't shared them yet. I'll add one here when she does.

I did, however, take a few pictures when I got home. Here's one:

My sister-in-law made cookies for each of the birthday girls in their favorite animal shape and color. Ashley had blue-iced cats, purple elephants for Elen, green froggies for my froggy friend Janet, and pink poodles for moi!

Connie also gave us the cookie cutter with our little package of cookies. Very cute!

SOMEONE decided to be a little smart-aleck in her gift-giving.

Hmm....they don't LOOK like geckos!

Didn't taste like geckos either! NOT that I'd know what a gecko would taste like, for goodness sakes!

(And I was just teasing about the "smart-aleck" part - Elen gives wonderful gifts! A great smelling candle and a puppy dog magnetic frame went along with the yummy chocolates.)

I hope your candy was better than mine...elephants don't make good candy. They make FABULOUS coffee, tea, and cookies though!! I had a picture of my cookies...but it seems to have been deleted :-/ oooops.

It was DELISH! Geckos evidently make terrific chocolate!

Cynthia said...

CUTE cookies. What a cute gift idea.

I hope the geckos didn't taste fishy. You might recall I don't like fishy things.
